Wildcats lose out to League Leaders

posted on 15 July 2011

The Wakefield Trinity Wildcats lost out 48-6 to league leaders The Wigan Warriors this evening at the DW Stadium.

Two tries from Carmont and Hock in the first 10 minutes took the scores to 12-0 in the home sides favour, but a come back from Griffin closed the gap to 12-6 with a well taken try from the young centre.

The Wildcats rallied and nearly levelled on a number of occasions with Chris Dean being held up, but Wigan crossed the line three times in seven minutes before the break to lead 30-6 at half-time.

After a scrappy start to the second half, Tomkins’ chip kick forced Veivers to concede a drop-out but more sloppy play left the DW Stadium waiting for the first second-half score.

Wakefield came close to being the first to touch down following a penalty and a Charnley knock-on, but the visiting side failed to capitalise.

Tomkins then put the hosts back on the front foot and claimed a 66th-minute try followed by Hock who went on to claim his third try of the evening just minutes before the end of the game.

Wakefield displayed some solid effort and with a total of 4 tries being held up the score line could have been much closer if the touch downs had been awarded.
